"Bring the whole tithe,
(one-tenth), into the storehouse, that there may be food in my
house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it." Malachi 3:10
The three part Tithing Bank pictured here reads,
to God 10% or more for church and missions.
Second, save some
money for when you REALLY need it.
Third, ___________'s spending
money. (Child's name is written in the blank space)
What you need: Three 8 oz.
containers, the patterns to cover them, tacky glue, hot glue,
scissors, crayons and stickers are optional.
here to get the patterns to cover the containers.
What you do:
Wash and dry the containers thoroughly. Print the
onto colored or white paper. Then cut them out. The child may decorate the patterns with
crayons and stickers (optional). Before you glue the patterns onto the
containers, open and close the "open here" side at the tops
of the containers a few times. This will make it easy to open and
close when placing money in and out of the bank. You will need to
print three pattern pages per bank. The 2 1/4" x 5" pattern
strips are glued across the top and down the sides of the container.
The patterns with text go on the front and back sides. (See picture
above) The back side doesn't need the text showing. However, if you
decide to use the text side of the pattern on back, make sure they
match the front side text. Once the patterns are glued on, hot glue the three sections
together making sure they are in proper order. Make sure the glue is
dry before trying to open and close the bank sections.
